This very impressive sword is known as the "Garde de Bataille" type designed originally for officers of the Dragoons and Chasseurs but later also the Cuirassier officers. This example is 100% original and dates to about 1805. This particular saber is of the undress or combat form, a no-nonsense weapon. The "hatchet pointed" double fullered blade is 37 inches long and has some minor light pitting here and there that does not affect its appearance. As a private purchase the blade is not arsenal marked. The blade was never embellished.

The wooden scabbard retains about 95% of its lacquered leather surface. The brass mounts on the scabbard show normal wear but no abuse. The drag or "dart" is the "serpentine type" which dates the sword prior to 1815 as do the large carrying rings on the on the top 2 mounts. 98% original leather is extant on the grips as well as all the original multi-strands of twisted wire. Little if any original gilt remains. From the famous M. Robinson collection.   [pe] [ph:L]
